People that have health problems are vulnerable and even sometimes desparate for advice.
Anyone may add professional titles to their names on the internet, but that does not mean it is bonafide.
A title may make others feel safe to accept what a poster says without checking it out with a known professional.
I will ask for credentials, meaning a way to check on the lisence of the poster, such as the full name and state of the liscence.
If the poster does not wish to reveal personal information, they have the option to post just as a peer without a title by their names.
Please be considerate of the needs of others and post your lisenced name and the state, or omit your medical title.
